Chisolm Distinguished Research Scholar Appointment

As you may recall, I announced last fall that I had been appointed a Professor of Law at Case Western Reserve University School of Law. Today, I follow up with additional personal news–that I have been appointed the Laura B. Chisolm Distinguished Research Scholar at Case Western. I am proud of this, as it marks a milestone in my ongoing research mission.

And this particular distinguished scholar designation is in memory and honor of the late Professor Laura Chisolm, an alumnus of Case Western Law, and a distinguished researcher around wills and trusts, and an academic leader in her own right. (More on her legacy here.) I’m honored that through this appointment, I will get to carry on my research mission of defending and bolstering American democracy in her honor.
